A collection of hauntingly beautiful science fiction and horror short stories by "Prophet" and "Ritual" artist Malachi Ward. Collects stories from "Mome," "Study Group Magazine," "Sundays," "Best American Comics 2013," and more.

In a dozen stories Malachi explores and blends the classic themes of fantasy and science fiction using a range of illustration techniques and styles. In "Utu" a Shaman arrives at an outpost with prognostications of a terrible war. He claims his visions come from a mysterious god, but can he be trusted? In "Hero for Science" a time-travelling rescue mission turns dour when a team member goes native. In "The Scout" while retrieving information in a remote cave, a scout encounters another version of himself.
